In 2015, Sharon Wampler and about 80 of her Bird Rock neighbors started out on a quest to clarify — and tighten — some of the city's rules governing so-called “McMansions,” oversized homes on undersized lots. Three years later, where, and when, that quest will end remains in doubt. The land-use “dragon” some Bird Rockers are trying to slay: The 50 percent rule in the San Diego municipal code allowing single-family home remodels to be exempt from costly and time- consuming Coastal Development Permits, as long as the builder keeps 50 percent-plus of the exterior walls of the existing home. “Fifty percent of the front of our house is still the original walls,” said Wampler, a scientist with no previous land-use experience speaking on her own home remodel. “But now they're (developers) building around that, which has actually happened over the past five years because of the aggressive interpretation of that (50 percent) rule. That's what started this three-year journey.” “That's the problem, the permissive (municipal) code,” said Diane Kane, Ph.D., an architectural history instructor enlisted to analyze the 50 percent rule, how it works and how it can be redefined. Kane said her investigation into city documents showed the definition of the 50 percent rule is obscure. “There's no date on it, no authorship, no attribution, ” Kane said. “Technically, it doesn't exist. The city council, or the public, never saw it. It was something developed internally (by the city).” Kane said the 50 percent rule, as presently construed and interpreted, is a farce. “It's not an addition, it's a completely new structure,” she said. “That creates a lot of heartburn because people have no idea what's going on. All of a sudden, a house is stripped to the bone, literally, and people are going, where does this come from? Something can be built too close to the property line. People are losing privacy. And there's absolutely no community review.” Wampler and others lobbied local civic groups, an effort culminating in the creation of Citizens for Responsible Coastal Development (CCRD), an ad hoc committee formed in 2015 by the La Jolla Community Planning Association. Both groups are continuing to work to abolish La Jolla's 50 percent coastal exception rule, and replace it with their own “Incentive-based zoning” approval process.  CRCD’s “Incentive-based zoning” process would reduce the project applicant's floor area ratio (FAR) from .6 to .4 in La Jolla and Bird Rock.The applicant would then have to conform to CRCD’s list of design incentives to earn back their right to build their home more densely to the current .6 FAR allowed.  The floor area ratio is the relationship between the total amount of usable floor area that a building has, or has been permitted for the building, and the total area of the lot on which the building stands. A higher ratio indicates denser construction taking up a greater portion of its available lot. FARs in La Jolla have been contested for years, with community planners, using them to judge whether or not new homes or remodels are oversized and/or out of character in their surrounding neighborhoods. Wampler and Kane said the land-use battle being waged by citizens to clean-up loopholes in city codes governing the allowable size of build-outs in residential areas is worth waging. “If you really want to be America's finest city, then let's have a little bit of conscious development, just do it in a planned, respectful way,” said Wampler. “We think this (incentive-based zoning) can be implemented with a (municipal) code update,” said Kane concluding, “Clearly the rules that have been used have not worked. That's why we're saying specific elements of the code need to be changed.” Wampler said, with use of incentives discouraging overdevelopment, that builders will be able to get to the maximum FAR allowed, “But they're going to have to follow incentive-based rules, like push back the second story, or leave a view corridor,” she said.

The Winsellar Brasserie in Sorrento Valley is actually five businesses — a French restaurant, wine lockers, a casual wine bar, a wine shop and international wine tours — all rolled into one. And company chairman/CEO and founder Gary Parker, an SDSU architecture student who started the endeavor as a wine storage facility in 1985, likes it and intends to keep it that way. “I'm an elderly statesman, that's enough for me,” quipped Parker, who added, when he started out, “There were no private wine cellars at that time, nobody was storing wines for commercial use. So we started renting out wine lockers, and when they got full, we looked for and found this place (9550 Waples St., Suite 115).” Parker converted much of his new building space into wine lockers for his customers expanding, from 33 to 175, the number of individual lockers available. He now warehouses wine lockers on three floors of the building. “I designed this storage,” noted Parker adding, wine, of course, is the central focus of most everything WineSellar does. Parker added he became both a wine connoisseur and an epicurean early-on. “I had started a restaurant (926 in Pacific Beach) in 1975 and I fell in love with wine and the restaurant business,” he said. “When we got into this building, we put in a kitchen and started having winemaker dinners. We had a great chef. The place got really popular, and then we opened up for lunch.” The Brasserie, a French restaurant with a relaxed setting, which Parker and wife Lori opened in 1988, is white tablecloth and top drawer. Open for lunch and dinner, the restaurant serves a seasonal, contemporary French menu complemented by an award-winning wine list and handmade cocktails. Then there's the Wine Shop downstairs, as well as the WineSellar Wine Club. “We have three subscriber wine-of-the-month clubs, including the casual side wine bar lounge downstairs from the Brasserie,” Parker said, noting he caters to a broad cross-section of wine aficionados. “We have everyone from beginners who store a couple cases with us, to collectors,” he said. “We have a guy who has a thousand cases of wine (stored) with us. He's got a lot on our third floor.” These days, the Parkers are getting more involved with their wine tours, which were started in 2001 and run by wife Lori Parker. “We go around the world,” said Parker of his tours. “I just got back from one in Portugal.” WineSellar tour groups are small, around a dozen people, and the wine tour trips are about two weeks in duration. “We've been to Spain, Italy, France, South America and South Africa,” Parker said, adding he keeps the tour groups small because, “We have intimate dinners at wineries, and that number of people is enough for one table. The WineSellar Brasserie is open every day except Sunday. Lunch in the Brasserie is served Tuesday through Friday. Dinners there are served Tuesdays through Saturdays.

Israel’s iconic singer-songwriter, guitarist, and UNICEF goodwill ambassador David Broza will embark on a coast-to-coast winter tour this December, celebrating 40 years since the release of his best-known song, “Yihye Tov” (Things Will Be Better). Broza will bring his talents to the Lawrence Family JCC on Dec. 20 at 8 p.m. The well-known composition was written in 1977 during the Arab-Israeli peace talks between Egyptian President Anwar Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin and has become an anthem of the Israeli peace movement.   Joining Broza on stage is a world-class group of seasoned and rising stars: From Palestine, Berklee College of Music graduate and qanun virtuoso Ali Paris; from Israel and NYC on guitars Jonathan Levy; from Israel on piano and keyboards Shaul Eshet; from New York, also a Berklee graduate, on recorders Tali Rubinstein; from Israel on drums Yuval Lion, and also from Israel on bass guitar Uri Kleinman. The tour follows the release of Broza’s album titled “The Set List,” a collection of studio and live recordings celebrating David Broza’s career as one of Israel’s most important cultural figures. “Yihye Tov” is represented on “The Set List” with a live version recorded in 2007 at Broza’s annual concert held at the totemic fortress of Masada, and features special guests Shawn Colvin and Jackson Browne. “We need to communicate if we are not to leave it to the voices of doubters, of prejudice and hatred. You cannot allow people to think that it is just black and white. We need education if we are to learn how to create respect. It is not that I don’t see evil, bad, negativity, and violence. I see it and I refuse to submit to it,” Broza said recently in The Guardian. Broza garnered widespread acclaim for his 2013 album “East Jerusalem West Jerusalem,” produced by Grammy Award-winner Steve Earle, and recorded in its entirety in the Palestinian Sabreen Studio in East Jerusalem. The work, featuring a band of both Israeli and Palestinian musicians, resulted in a beautiful, intimate documentary of the same name. Vanity Fair called the documentary “extraordinary” and added, “if no one else is going to try and heal the world, he will.” “East Jerusalem West Jerusalem” is currently streaming on Netflix. The title track, co-written by and featuring Wyclef Jean, appears on The Set List. “The Set List” also includes “The Long Road,” featuring Irish singer Maura O’Connell. The song, written by Cliff Eberhardt, was recorded in 1998 but was shelved along with the ensuing album after Broza sustained serious injuries following a car crash. Tickets cost $45 to $65.
